? >> well, i mean, there are 15,000 books about abraham lincoln, but his foreign policy is almost never treated. my book is about lincoln and u.s. foreign policy. part of the reason there hasn't been about lincoln's foreign policy in nearly 70 years. a human narrative about it. that's before the lincoln papers were released and library of congress in 1947. so there's a lot of water under the bridge since then. but i think one of the reasons there's no book about his foreign policy. he a strong and competent secretary of state. he didn't do everything in foreign affair. but the things he did do are really important. and so i've sliced it a little differently. i've taken look at the things that lincoln did do in foreign releases without saying he did everything or everything right, by the way. he made some mistakes too. >> was foreign policies all tied in to the civil war? >> well, we treat the civil war period in this. i have a chapter early on about the mexican war. lincoln was a freshman congressman in the house of representatives during the end of the mexican war in the 1840s. lincoln

dulles brothers and the foreign-policy establishment the rule this country for the first half of the 20th century ride into the 1960s. what is remarkable about this is how small it was. and in those days american foreign policy was really a problem of a very small group of people that went to the same schools and they were all white protestant males and they were all wealthy and they all worked for the same law firms and the same investment banks and they all have the same outlook on the world. it was a very inbred group and they all shared the same view of the world. the dulles brothers were perhaps the ultimate exemplary part of that view. and now in my book i do not just talk about the dulles brothers as political figures but individuals. that is why take their story all the way back to early childhood and before. and they really were individuals of american history. and so let me tell you about the forces that shape them. because i think that these are also forces that shaped our country as well. the dulles brothers are us and we are them. they did not hijack america or american
